At UNH, research in engineering and the physical sciences explores phenomena from the almost imperceptible subatomic and ‘nano’ scales to the global scale and beyond. Studies of atoms and molecules deepen our understanding of them and point to new applications in product design and manufacturing. Learning about materials and processes involved in roads and bridges, robotics, turbulent flow in air and water, and how to contain, clean up, and prevent damage to rivers and oceans contributes to improved built and natural environments in New Hampshire and elsewhere.
UNH research has had a notably positive impact on the community across a broad range of research areas, due to the efforts of faculty, students, and staff working in the colleges and focused research centers and institutes.
